A New World Unveiled. Meet 420 Kent.
Introducing 420 Kent Avenue, an unparalleled living experience directly on the East River in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Composed of three multi-dimensional glass towers designed by the award-winning architect ODA New York, 420 Kent will feature 857 residences, 20,000 sq. ft. of restaurant and retail space, over 25,000 sq. ft. of indoor amenities, and more than 80,000 sq. ft. of outdoor space including a 400-foot-long landscaped riverside esplanade located in the center of Brooklyn’s best neighborhood - South Williamsburg waterfront. Just one subway or ferry stop from Manhattan.
Shift the axis and discover a new perspective — one without the four-corner hierarchy. At 420 Kent, many residences enjoy three-sided views and private outdoor spaces in the sky.
Here, the design is a departure from classic commercial extrusions present in so many of today’s residential towers. The result includes sprawling skyline views and intimate moments of interaction, both indoors and out.
We challenged the rectangular architectural form of today. No longer are the four corners the most desirable; we’ve unboxed the ‘big box’.

Welcome to a versatile environment founded on community and reflective of the city we live in. Stop in at the coffee bar for some coffee to go or visit a neighbor’s art exhibit on display.
